Aldous Huxley on the Half Shell

No time for blogging today! I am busy helping Germaine Gregarious entertain Dr. Monkerstein. He stopped by the Lair™ unexpectedly, and while the girls were showing him around he had a most unfortunate misadventure. He accidently tripped over a hand grenade and fell down a staircase into an elevator shaft, right into a hail of bullets! (Jeepers! What a mess. I think that it's going to take more than club soda to get those stains out...) In the meantime, you can watch this swell video of the introduction to the film "Idiocracy". This seemingly innocent comedy clip is actually a eugenics promotional film!

After seeing the bathing beauty, I doubt I'll be able to get anything done at all now.

Oh, I wouldn't say that film was so innocent. "Go away! Batin'!"

Tripped my butt! I left an orange hand on my back!

Ape IQs go up. Human IQs go down. But that's the way you want it, right Dr. Zaius.

I think you misspelled that trademark - it's LIAR, not Lair.

Dr. Z that video is far too true! Yikes!!

Idiocracy was a pretty good movie, not spectacular, but not worth getting buried like it did.

Unfortunately, my wife is a Chicago Public School teacher so seeing this part hit awfully close to home for her.

Dave The Angry Rhode Islander: Ah, the girls of the LGPPP. We should do a calendar!

Dean Wormer: Ideed! You you would seem to have gotten straight to the salient point in the clip. :o)

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein: Bah! I was merely trying to help, Dr. Monkerstein! Now, what where you doing in the bushes? Dean Wormer wants to know!

Darwin's Dagger: Who am I to stand in the way of progress?

GETkristiLOVE: Ha! You are indeed precocious, Ms. Love. Now, can you explain what Dr. Monkerstein was doing in the bushes? Dean Wormer wants to know!

BAC: The problem with eugenics is that part of if is right. It's a scary thought.

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator: I agree, it was kind of a cool movie. I loved the enormous Wal-Mart!
